    My wife and I will traveling to WDW in Oct 2019. Which Animal Kingdom resort has the best animal viewing in the "savanna view" room category Jambo House or Kidani?

    Hi David,

    I'm really excited to hear that you and your wife are planning to stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge! It's one of my very favorite Disney Resort hotels, and both Kidani Village and Jambo House are spectacular!

    I have stayed in a savanna view room at both of these Resort hotels and found the wildlife viewing to be quite similar. You'll find a wildlife viewing field guide in your room, which is really fun to use to keep track of all of the gorgeous creatures that you see. I mean, it's not every day that a greater kudu and reticulated giraffe wander right outside your room! With great shops, splash-tastic pools, delicious food, fun cultural activities, gorgeous artwork, inspiring music, and incredible wildlife at both of them, you'll love either one! To me, the main difference between the two of them is that Jambo House is a bit more busy and active and Kidani Village feels a bit slower-paced. They're only a short walk or complimentary shuttle bus ride away from each other, though, and when you stay at one, you're considered a Guest of both of them. I'd encourage you to choose whichever one feels more like home to you, then enjoy and explore both of them during your trip!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, David, with your question. If you have any more questions as you're planning your visit, please feel free to come see us again! I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
